Do you have people who read your blog but then comment via snail mail (the USPS kind)? I do.
It never fails to crack me up when I get a snail mail commenting on the blog. Why spend $$$ to mail off a comment when you could simply type one in online? Or email me directly through the published email address? I understand the local readers who either call me on the phone or stop me on the street to comment on the blog - they feel it is more personal and polite to comment directly. I can understand the additional sense of connection that comes from the face-to-face or mouth-to-ear interactions. But to mail off an epistle about a blog post seems to me to be a bit odd.
So far most of the snail mails have come from people I know because we went to school together close to 40 years ago. It isn't like they aren't computer literate; they are. It isn't like they don't occasionally send an email; they do. So why the snail mail epistles? I'm hoping one of them will choose to answer, be it via snail mail or email or blog comment or ....
It is pretty funny in a way. I read other bloggers complaining that their friends don't read their blog, their family doesn't read their blog, etc. I have a different problem, a number of people who read my blog but don't comment in the standard ways. I've decided to treat it as an honor to me that they have found a channel to convey their comments to me - what more could an itinerant scribbler hope for?
What's your comment oddity of the moment?
